I went over 205Km/h in my 4AT during the summer. Got over 195 km/h (on my winter Continental tires) and still accelerating on Highway 401 in Toronto before slowing down. Normally this is not advisable- but once a while I get lead foot disease even on a slow beast such as the auto.

201km/h in a 05 4AT and that was just in 3rd I didn't hit fourth. I backed off after that, I didn't want anyone spotting me.
Running on Toyo Proxes 4

Went 220+ km/h... Ran out of road, so had to slow down. I had my ECU flashed, so no rev limit or speed limit.

Be careful, only crazy people would do this (and yes I am). Better to take you car to a track, if your sane.

I don't know if u got 4 or 6 speed, but 201km on 3rd gear is impossible. Most likely it will be 4th?

Correct me if I am wrong.

I have the newest flash, but seems like my car won't go any further over 184km...with my summer tires.

I know still can go, maybe the wind slow me down!!

227km in 4th on Woodbine (north of Toronto)... had a buddy in the car and scared the **** out him... after about 200km it doesn't pick up nearly as good though... was stuck at 217 until i started going down a hill and then it went up to about 225 - 227 and then i had to hit the breaks cause i saw another car coming towards me (thank god it wasn't a cop). o and it's a 4AT 05

Good Times

184 km/h in north borneo. 4AT road is a factor, and speed cut.

That should be right by my calculations, roughly 200km/h is 125mph which is how fast I was going, topping out 3rd in a 4speed. 1mph should be about 1.6km/h multiply the 125 by 1.6 and you get 200.

225km/h, could have went further if not for the car blocking the lane.

05 4AT - NS Highway

How does Germany with its autobahn protect it's warranties? Essentially, couldn't we take an RX8, top it out on the autobahn, go way over 100 and still be under warranty?

America is filled with enough lawyers to waste their time on seeing how fast people claim to go, only to void their warranties...

got a 6 speed AT, it goes to 125mph only then computer drops rev. to 5000-6000 and drops speed also, I have to depress acelerator then step on it again till it reaches 125mph and drops again, these nany devices sucks. Even my KIA sephia had done the 140's mph.

Why do people keep saying the limit is 125?! I have to try this myself on a open road. Which I rarely find.

the speed cut is 125 electronically unless you have an aftermarket ECU such as interceptor or you send your comp to asia to the re-ameyaidfa%$# place and have it RETUNED.

useless thread.

I can't say that I've broken the speed limit on the open road.
